Portrait of Harjit
Harjit forms part of the 'Conversations with Friends Collection', which consists of abstract ceramic portraits of Tina's friends, representing each one's character, disposition and psyche in a subjective and symbolic way. It is not a literal representation, but rather an attempt to give a sense of Harjit's character in visual form using symbolism and allegory. It was made in defiance of the cacophony of the digital age, challenging the prevalence of one-way communication. The piece is a celebration of friendship, and the importance of dialogue and conversation.
Portrait of Harjit is an abstract portrait by ceramicist Tina Vlassopulos of her dear friend Harjit. The piece evokes Harjit's spirit - balanced and wise, with a penchant for shoes and red wine.
